COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An iconic American lager famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor - with a roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character.

Bottle. Nothing amazing, but absolutely great for an inexpensive American Lager. When you are a little short on cash, go for this one. You and your friends will not be disappointed!!!

Probably my overall favorite beer, oldest brewery in U.S. Smooth, relatively mild but subtlely complex flavor that pours beautifully and is very refreshing. It blends sweetness with a combination of hops for excellent balance and finish. Only available on the east coast and recently in TN.

I grew up on Lager and studied with it at Penn State. While it is unavailable in Boston, it has been known to sneak in from time to time :) Very smooth taste and allows you to have several during the day. Great for BBQ, tailgates, or picnics.

Aroma is somewhat nutty, head minimal but present. No lacing, appearance is attractive. Slightly bitter with a very mild soapy finish. Light on the palate and overall smooth. More attached to my stouts and wheat ales than this amber beer. Not a bad brew, but not something I’d keep around the house. Black & Tan is more like it.

The go-to beer. Perfect in any situation. Rich flavor for an American Lager, much more complex than any of the other big national lagers. Consistent quality, always refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good food beer, to me it tastes like a mix of guiness and miller light. I recommend giving it a try!

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 A good staple beer. It?s nothing fancy. But, it?s good when you?re working around the house or watching the game. It?s much better than other big named American lagers!

Smooth amber beer. Good beer to drink on tap at the bar (it’s easy to spot out in a croud of glasses on a table). My usual beer at the bar, would definitely recommend at least trying this beer.
